Wedding veils are somewhat conventional, and at this day and age, you really don’t have to wear one. You probably don’t know how good you’d look in a veil so go ahead and try one. You might end up liking it after all- you never know. But for those of you who would like to rock that wedding veil, you’ll find so many beautiful pieces designed for the modern bride.
Here are a couple of things to consider when choosing a wedding veil.
- The type of dress you’ll be wearing
If you’ll be wearing a dress with a long train and a lot of embellishment at the back, then avoid veils that are lengthy because they’ll hide the beautiful elements of your dress. Choose a simple and sheer veil that still shows off the beautiful details at the back of your dress.
- Your wedding theme
A good wedding veil blends perfectly with the rest of your clothing and accessories. Remember the idea is not to look overly done. Try and keep things simple when wearing a very detailed wedding veil. If you are looking for a vintage look, a birdcage veil would be perfect.
- Your wedding venue
Make sure you choose a veil that is perfect for your wedding location. If you’ll be getting married at the beach, you want to avoid the extra long veils because they’ll look out of place. But if you have flower girls who can carry the veil behind you then go for that full length veil. But a full length veil requires proper attention and care so consider this when choosing one.
- How delicate is your dress
The material and length of your veil shouldn’t cause any damage to your dress. If you are wearing a very detailed gown with a lot of beadwork then look for a veil that is short. It is perfect if you are getting married in a church and you want that traditional look.
